Two weeks ago, a thirty-six-year-old woman named Alyssa Morales was found on fire in the Kensington section of Philadelphia.

The tragedy occurred late Friday night while Alyssa was on East Tioga Street.

One witness reportedly told police that Alyssa was engaged in an argument with a man and a woman just before the fire.

“She saw the female that was with them spray some kind of liquid towards the male and the female. That liquid then lit on fire,” Chief Inspector Frank Vanore of the Philadelphia Police Department said.

The man on fire immediately fled the scene. Then, once the fire department arrived, they found Alyssa with severe injuries.

She is now in critical condition and a medically induced coma while undergoing treatment at Temple University Hospital. According to the police, Alyssa suffered extreme burns on sixty percent of her body.

The police are still working to understand if she was intentionally set on fire. So far, the department has made no arrests.

Additionally, a close friend of Alyssa’s named Danielle has organized a GoFundMe campaign to help support the enormous care costs.

In a recent update, Danielle shared how Alyssa has already undergone four surgeries. Still, she is not in stable condition.

“Her survival rate is not certain. The doctors are working hard to remove as much dead and burnt skin as possible without increasing her risk of infection,” Danielle explained.

“She still remains in a coma and is receiving the best care possible,” Danielle continued.

Alyssa’s GoFundMe had an original goal of thirty-five thousand dollars, and over nine hundred and fifty donors have helped the Morales family reach this financial milestone.

The next step in Alyssa’s journey to recovery entails a three-month stay in the hospital before being transferred to a rehabilitation facility.

“All of your kind messages, support, and overwhelming donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you all,” the family wrote.
